Solar Eclipse Event

Date: April 8, 2024
Time: 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Location: Adams Wildlife Sanctuary

“eBird the eClipse”
Join Matt Hayes and Jarod Hitchings to observe birds before, during, and after the solar eclipse. Observations will be reported to Cornell Lab’s eBird program. Illinois Audubon Society is promoting eBirding across the state to observe how birds behave during this rare event. Although Adams Wildlife Sanctuary will experience only a partial eclipse of 96.9%, reports from across Illinois will be useful to compare how bird species react. This information will be compared and presented in the Illinois Audubon magazine.
